In recent years PCB has not had the opportunity to bestow The Leroy and Mary Price PCB Membership Awards because no chapters have met the criteria established in 2005. The Affiliate and Membership Relations Team felt it was time to review the award criteria and recommend revision that would encourage continued growth of our chapter affiliates. It is our hope that our chapters will give priority to efforts and recruitment and retention projects that promote growth . After a review by the PCB Executive Team the following criteria and award description has been approved.
The purpose of the Leroy and Mary Price PCB Membership Awards is to encourage chapters to work on membership growth and retention.
For the purpose of this award, the chapters of PCB shall be divided into small chapters and large chapters. Small chapters shall consist of 24 paid members or fewer. Large chapters shall consist of 25 paid members or more.
Every chapter that demonstrates a net gain in membership; the number of new members exceeds the number of lost members for the membership calendar year will receive a certificate of recognition.
The top chapter with the greatest net gain from the small chapters and the top chapter with the greatest net gain from the large chapters will each receive a $50 cash prize.
Since these honors will be bestowed at our annual conference, chapters can continue to work toward the goal of highest net gain until October 15, 2016. Send any additional membership information to the PCB Office and let us all work to achieve this goal!
